Jordan Lee, the upstate New York resident has a new video titled ‘Hiatus’. It’s been a while since Jordan has provided us with any music. I remember first hearing his dope project, Upstate of Mind a couple of years back. Well, Jordan has grown, his voice has matured but he’s still creating those nice, chilled hip hop vibes.
There’s one producer who constantly and consistently releases dope instrumental projects – Knx (Knxwledge). This new project, released today, is no different. As per usual, this isn’t free – just like any other Knxwledge release. But, for the price of only $10 you can cop yourself some high quality hip hop instrumentals, with that distinctive Knx sound.
Quick off the back of the success of their debut album, Escape Music. The Mouse Outfit provide a brand new track and video featuring long-term collaborators Dubbul O and Sparkz (Voodoo Black). Chilled vibes and a boom bap rhythm provides those traditional Mouse Outfit sounds. As per usual, Dubbul O and Sparkz supply a masterclass in the art of rhyme to complete the package.
Featured on this month’s NouGold podcast, it’s the brand new track from Black Josh – ‘Bong Life’. This is the second video release from Josh’s mixtape ‘Blick Flair’s Ape Mountain’, and the subject matter is as expected. It’s yet another strong release from the Manchester hip hop community, which keeps going from strength-to-strength. Ape Cult dun did it again!
The day is here – The Bluntskins LP is finally with us. It’s not just one for the smokers amongst us, as it’s a dope hip hop record in its own right. The beats are laid down by none other than Pro P, and the microphone duties are shared between Cheech and Bill Sykes. The tracks range from bangers like ‘Roll Up’ and ‘Smoke Dat Piff’ to chilled joints, like ‘Mellow High’. Manchester is proving, once again, that when it comes to high quality UK hip hop this is the place producing it.
